Never Post Your General Sisi Post Early in the Morning ...

...as I did today, because it will surely get worse:
Egypt's Al-Wafd (not a state-owned paper!) headline today
2014 Year of Destiny
Egypt Awaits the Word of Al-Sisi
The People Want a Hero in the Ittihadiyya [Presidential] Palace
And the Yearners Await the General's Decision on Presidential Candidacy
